Kate at Formosa Cafe

In Bartender, West LA on June 24, 2011 at 4:26 pm


Edit 5/25/12

Kate is now the bar manager at Formosa Cafe.

She can be found most nights there.

Kate works at Sotto on Wednesdays, Fridays and Saturdays. She’ll be starting at Eveleigh soon on other days.

I loved all the bourbon cocktails she’s made me but she also does cool things like beer cocktails.

Edit: 7/5/11

Kate is now the bar manager at Sotto. Her schedule is now Wednesdays through Sundays! She will not be at Eveleigh so catch her at Sotto!
